Steve,
 
I suggested Thailand to the wife last night and she seemed interested. I just need to check the price to make sure I am interperting it right.

It's $2130 as a current SLM student plus another $280 for my wife if she comes along. Correct?

Thanks Steve

That is correct and that includes airport transfers, breakfasts and the two dinners included for your wife also.

Hi Steve,
I am coming to join you in Thailand, as I have managed to get the time off. Is anyone from Queensland coming, so that I can, may be, arrange to travel with them.

Warm Regards
Sophie :)

Thanks Steve,
I am trying to pay the deposit but the price comes up as $269.00 deposit for single room instead of 213.00 which is the 10% of $2130.

Hi Steve and everybody

Q1 Is there still opportunity for companion person ( daughter) ie not therapist , not sufferer, to come along?
And if so, ( sorry to display my ignorance first time on the forum,)  but just to doubly clarify that reply to Steve2003, is cost for current student + friend then

1x $2130 + $280 or, 2 x 2130 + 280  or even $1800+..?? as we would share  ???

Q2
 what is current situation re taking tables?

Thanks, and looking forward to meeting you all   :)

Cheers
Virginia

Hi Virginia, yes you can still bring a non participating companion along. The cost is just an additional $280 for them which includes the accomodation, transfers, 2 x dinners and breakfast each day.

Plan to bring your table but I will finalise that before too long.

I am sure it will a memorable trip for all the right reasons.   ;D

Regards
Steve

Hi All,
Just wanted to let you know we have all returned safely from the Thailand conference and I was really pleased with the progress everyone made, both therapists and pain sufferers.

It was great to see how much more confident and competant the therapists were after the 2 weeks intensive training and also it actually surprised me in how much of a change we were able to achieve in the body's of the chronic pain sufferers in that short time, even when they had sufferered for many months and even years in some cases.

Not having tried the 2 weeks of intensive treatment before I was wondering a little about how some of the older people would cope but it was great and they seemed to breeze through it.

An extra bonus was that we had such a really nice group of people who all got along really well and on top of the work we did they had lots of enjoyable dinners and sightseeing trips together. The of course there was Frank who ensured we always had a smile on our face with his great one liners. It went so well I am looking forward to organising Thailand again next year so those of you who were sorry you missed it should start saving now because it will come around so quickly again I am sure.

Hopefully some of the group will post some feedback here for everyone to read and I will be putting some info up on the www.learnmassage.com.au web site very soon. I am madly getting organised for Coff's Harbour which is just 2 short months away and more on that soon also.

Regards
Steve

Feedback from Thailand
« Reply #40 on: April 30, 2008, 05:58:01 PM »
Well where to start that is the question?   First up I had a great time in Thailand.  It was well worth the money and the end results speak for themselves.

I went to Thailand as a "sufferer"

I was probably Steve's worse nightmare....  I did NOT do any preperation what so ever.  (and Initially I suffered because of it!)

I did no SLM Yoga,  no swimming pool exercises, no diet controll.

When Steve found out he just rolled his eyes and said well it is your body and your money!       Please take note here  HE IS RIGHT. SO if you are planning on going on one of these trips, do your self a favour and actually prepare yourself as Steve suggests.

I found the first week fairly painfull and had a "few" bruises here and there.   The second week was a lot better and I could feel major benefits from the yoga and pool sessions and the massages.   Steve's advice on drinking more water paid off and (with all the yoga, pool work and massages) the tighness and knots and blockages in my muscles were a thing of the past by the end of the two weeks.

Initially I thought that having this first conference outside of Australia was a mistake,  after being there I now think it was a great place to have it.    The food and accomadation was so cheap it covered the cost of the flight.   In fact it looks like the next conference in Australia is going to work out more expensive by the time you add in all your extras for food and entertainment.

The final result is my lower back pain is gone,  my overall muscle condition is vastly improved, my flexability has improved, I am motivated to continue with the yoga and pool work and I met some really special people whose company I enjoyed.  I would not hesitate to go back to Thailand next year if Steve keeps his promise to hold another confernce there in April 2009.     Oh and one last thing  all my bruises are gone!!

Hi Steve,

Six years ago I pulled my back shoveling snow. It felt like a tear, causing me to drop to my knees. I crawled into the house on my hands and knees in pain. I laid flat on my back for a week taking muscle relaxing & pain killer pills. I thought I would never walk again.  I have had x-rays and MRIís which showed a herniated disc. I did get better and seen many different chiropractors over the years. Finally through a friend I tried one more chiropractor who also uses pressure point therapy which has helped a lot, Cam has also had me try orthotics which I have but I still have basic two problems.
1)   When ever Iím laying down or try to go to sleep at night either on my right or left or sitting a long time I get this sciatic pain which starts from my hip butt area and goes down my left leg some times this can be sharp pain most other times itís like a wrestles leg problem just about drives me crazy causing me to get up and walk till this goes away, this can happen on my left mostly left or right side. Fore the most part during the day Iím fine and I walk a lot at work. Eventually After many hours this pain will calm down enough that I can fall asleep. Iím tiered most of the time due to lack of sleep, wearing me down.

       2) The other problem is at times I have a sharp pain in my hip butt area coming from my lower back always on the left side. I also feel pressure in that area. While walking I will get a sharp pain in my groin area causing me to almost go down, I have to be aware all the time so I donít.
Some time I can barely walk and have to go home from work. There are days when nothing happens and Iím fine. I donít know what sets these symptoms off, but just drives me crazy. Iím 54 years old and consider my self healthy person other wise, I eat healthy all the time.
Can your program help me with my sciatic problem? What muscle group or groups causing this problem pain?

Frank

Hi Frank,
Muscle imbalances cause the position of your structure to be in a different position when you lie down, setting off pressure on the nerve. It is the same on the days you have pain. Different tensions in various muscles on any given day or time change the position of that pressure. You do need to create stability, balance and strength to hold your spine and pelvis in the correct position and my program will show you the right way to do that.

Regards
Steve
